With a rare earth, you can probably just put it on the bolt head and then use a deep socket to remove the bolt during oil change time. I think the rare earth should stay on due to its very strong magnetic field.

Just a thought....what is the risk of having an external magnet collect all the metallic debris and then for what ever reason....releasing everything into the oil pan as a single glob of metal, possibly held together by magnetism?

Just a week ago I did a transmission pan drain and drop.
I fitted two additional magnets to the inside of the pan. The best magnets to use are Samarium Cobalt. These are very high temp. stable,and will maintain their strength at temps up to 300 degrees celcius or 572 degrees F. . (Neodymium magnets start to lose power at 80 degrees C.).
I don't see why you couldn't put one on the end of the engine sump bolt.
I got mine from Apex Magnets in USA,via ebay.

You can fit magnets inside, out side, on the sump plug , in the sump plug, any place you think it will hold particals of metal .They all do the job they are put on there for . I only put them in to my engine sump drain plug at the moment . You will get a replacment with the magnet fitted inside the plug itself as you knpw. And i have sent for one that fits on top of the oil filter . But i have yet to fix one in to the gearbox [auto] . In all a good idea to catch those bits of metal that float around .

I too have used Samarium in my Transmissions. I put like eight all around the pan.

On the engine drain bolt, my Ford Mustang has a bolt with a magnet on the end.

The W211 has factory magnet on the same transmission. It has shape of the ladder and fits between the pan ribs, so can't move around.
If you are really that concern about having magnet, get the right one.

Unfortunately here in Australia the dealer quoted me $55 for one MB magnet.
Needless to say I declined and subsequently found six magnets for a little over half that much on ebay.

Do you have part # ?
For some reason MB parts are cheaper in USA than even in Germany.
With longer shopping list it might make sense to order at Husker, or whoever and pay not that big shipping.

I always thought those Filter Mag gizmos were pretty clever for engine oil, but they cost more than twice as much as I'm willing to pay. Keeping any captured metal particles inside the filter for easy removal is a great idea.
